about drone strikes, u.s. relations with india and the presence of osama bin laden in his country before his killing last spring. the former pakistani president plans to return to pakistan next year to seek the presidency in 2013. he recently spoke at the woodrow wilson center for about an hour. [inaudible conversations] >> good morning and welcome to the wilson center. and for many of you, including president musharraf, welcome back to the wilson center. i understand we have overflow crowds in numerous rooms befitting an important visitor and an important speech. my name is jane harman, i am the relatively new -- three months into it -- president and ceo of the wilson center. i'm a recovering politician. [laughter] having spent nine months -- nine months, nine terms in the united states congress, some would say and i would agree that my timing in terms of leaving was impeccable. [laughter] this is the second time that the center has hosted a public address by the former president of pakistan, pervez musharraf, a fact that underscores the center's intense interest in pakistan and its com
and the united states will agree at some point to reduce agricultural subsidies enough to satisfy china and india to the doha round? >> i think the challenge with doha is not so much america's willingness to consider reductions to support structure and system. i think it's fairly obvious in her physical condition and circumstances that's likely to happen. the problem is there's not a corresponding willingness on the part of china and india to be definite and concrete about how open their markets would be. as we look at a doha round in any trade agreement, we want to make sure it's fair and balanced. we can quantify with great specificity what we're willing to do relative to our support structures and systems. we need the same kind of specificity from china, india, brazil and other countries in terms of how open markets will be to ensure we are getting a fair deal. >> one of the paradoxes of booming u.s. exports is that some of the most feared import dependent nations are the ones that have the greatest amount of food security and the most dependent on food prices seminar price spikes in more deve
from developing countries which are america's friends such as india, bangladesh, the philippines and indonesia. the outcry in those countries would be loud and politically damaging. so long as the u.s.-led international community is unwilling to either intervene or engage on land in somalia, then the payment of ransom will remain the only way that hostages can be brought home. my final point that is if yemen was to fail, maritime disaccord in this region would worsen considerably. if both side of the gulf of aden were to become launch for potentially terrorist attacks, it is possible that ship operators would demand a much higher level of naval protection. if that was not forthcoming, they may seek alternative routes which would add to the cost of boast finished goods -- both finished goods and raw material including oil and gas. economic development will crowd out islamist extremism as effectively as it will undermine piracy. once again, mr. chairman, thank you for the opportunity to be here today. i'm happy to answer any questions you might have. >> thank you very much for your
are closing in the eradication of older. and he pointed out there are four countries, nigeria, india, pakistan and afghanistan, and the last year for which there is data, of course 2010. and he says it has decreased in nigeria, india and afghanistan, and afghanistan it. they have -- [inaudible] but it increased from 60 some the 144 from 2005-2010. he didn't give reasons our hypotheses why this might be so. let it seems to indicate that there are parts of the country that just are too restless or not under the control of the vaccinations. do you have some insight on that? >> those are absolute numbers. 167, again, besides the population has to be borne in mind. of the four countries you mention, the fastest population growth has been pakistan. and so, therefore, we have more infants that require the polio vaccination. we have a national program for polio eradication. when prime minister took over in 1993, for the second term, it was one of our first priorities and we got it down instantly. right now in the last or years or so, the numbers have spiked a little bit. and they have primarily been i
to be sent overseas to customers and consumers and places like china, in places like india and brazil. when i say the things that we make, things that are made here in america. american economy, actually as we speak is slowly becoming more explore oriented, more manufacturing. look at some of these charts, you actually see an upturn taking place in the manufacturing sector, in the expert sector. the problem is that in the last ten or twenty years as the economy became so dependent on american consumers who are now reluctant to spend. those sectors got hollowed out really thinned out. the growth we are seeing in manufacturing, for instance, believe it or not. we are seeing upturns and we have a story in the paper today about car makers helping to drive the recovery. we are seeing upturns in the midwest in the great lakes states. they are just not big enough anymore to drive the overall economy. it used to be in the 1980s and 1970s, we would have the big inventory where they would cut back and rebuild and drive the economy out of recession and into an recovery. manufacturing isn't big enough to
. india, japan. that's where we should be looking. host: next caller is bernie from new jersey. good morning. caller: good morning. your two guests are excellent. gives me a good perspective on everything. what scares me is there are no plans and no goals. the no goal part scares me as someone that has grown up with this space program at age 59. i think it is bad planning by this administration. i understand the professor saying we have to set our goals to what we are doing next. if we look at the government like your heart. we have arteries going out and veins coming in. if you are out sourcing, you are getting new technology in all the time. there's a lot that has made our life better through the space program. not just the goal of going to mars or whatever. thank you. very interesting discussion you are having. host: thank you. here is a question on facebook from paul. since the columbia accident, nasa has always had a second shuttle on the pad to perform a second rescue if needed, is it not in place for this launch? guest: it is not in place. this launch was intended to be a res
of that yesterday when they rolled the stone away india path is that they need jesus by the city while. well, her giving heart was pure when she said right, yeah, sure. and that is why patty was the first lady of all. in the assurance of eternal life given a baptism, let us stand and proclaimed around faith and stay together. i believe in one god, the father almighty, maker of heaven and earth and in jesus christ, his only son our lord, who was conceived by the holy ghost, born of the virgin mary, suffered under pontius pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. he descended into. the third day he rose again from the dead. he ascended into heaven and said it on the right hand of god the father almighty. from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. i believe in the holy ghost, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sin, the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting, and and then. >> alert be with you. let us pray. our father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. thy kingdom come, they will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. give us this d
to be a friend of china and you are india and china. so our technology, our brainpower and what we did well is how the chinese are getting that technology and know-how in china. to what they called indigenous innovation. that's contrary to the wto obligation. what do they say to defend it? they say we're not really forcing the companies. it's not force technology. we're telling the companies if they want to be a friend of china and make money in china have got to transfer their r&d and technology. we're not violating our obligations at all. but we can we incentivize this game. we've got to get our house in order and we incentivize our guys. made we should have lower taxes on companies that produce gdp in this country and higher taxes on countries that produce gdp in china. there are all kinds of things we can do. we should not let this go on because our children's future is being sacrificed. >> the challenge does seem to be to try to package this as a national competitive strategy that doesn't run afoul of views on free trade. certainly, a lot of proposals like this run aground because they
manufacturing base that would have to go to places like china and india and mexico where they don't really have any emission restrictions. it would if anything increase emissions. nonetheless -- in fact, i would say this. i'm very proud of the united states senate because now they have perhaps at the very most 24 votes to pass a cap-and-trade, so what does the president do? he says fine, we'll do it through regulations. so through regulations, he's attempt to go do that. and we're going to hear next week just another example. i could name -- in fact, there are six major areas where regulations are costing hundreds of billions of dollars, but another one he's going to announce next week is going to be tightening the standards on that and it's one that will be costing in the neighborhood of of $90 billion each year. so just in two of these regulations, you have have $400 billion a year that it's costing the american people. and people aren't just aware of it. you know, someone -- some smart guy in my office went back and he said you're not the first person to be concerned about these regulations
should you arianna in in the pantheon. one of the things about the hybrid of old media in india that i think we have to remember is that old media isn't really that old. it's a about 60, 70 years old in this coach. at the beginning of this country there was a social vibrant media in which there wasn't some mainstream publication, when ben franklin arrived in philadelphia is a 17 your runway there were 11 newspapers, one for each faction, be the anglicans or the quakers, you know, different groups. and he started the 12th representing the market street middle-class. and he also relied on contributions, social media, people for his paper were basically riding as arianna said because they wanted to bear witness to the struggle that was happening in the 1700s in america. they also occasionally as on the internet wrote anonymously. ben franklin famously used a pseudonym. but as they were doing it they had the hybrid as arianna and tim have created at aol and "huffington post." of the values of journalism that within him urging as well as the guy of social media and contributing and being pa
. india 5%. united states 2%. what we need to do in order to create jobs here is to create a national infrastructure bank that, in fact, leverages private capital towards public investment. a concept that has broad bipartisan support. it could help us close the 2.2 trillion gap that we need to restore roads, bridges, water systems, energy grids, telecommunication. allow us to build that 21st century infrastructure. create jobs, jobs that can't be outsourced. create them all over america. help them develop the technology for the future, putting us on that cutting edge of technology once again. these will be good jobs, well-paying jobs. so one more time that we can build in this nation. we are a nation that consumes today. we don't build. we consume from other countries. let's take this -- the bull by the horns here. let's introduce legislation, while american families are struggling today, we don't have the luxury for political gains. we need to get employment-expanding legislation now. investment in our future and that will create the jobs and that we'll rebuild america. and with that
international explanation was actually a problem lies in india and there was no such retrieval. >> i think andy wise in downing street during the sheraton case. >> direct contact on e-mail or lessons? >> i would've had to contact. >> is the conversation? >> it was mainly to do with work, by e-mail. >> a couple more questions. why would you pay the legal fees during the sheraton case when not only to witness this? >> sa said, i know james murdoch addressed this. when andy colson last "news of the world," he had an agreement that all matters related to this, his legal fees were paid and i think the same for clive goodman. on general care, it was when his legal fees would be paid when in fact he was a codefendant in the second cases. >> okay, are you aware of any payment for police officers enforced? >> no. no. >> thank you, chairman. i'd like to ask a question about mindy coward and the editor of stud 10. just could you -- there are specific questions i'd like to ask you about. could you paint a picture about how a newspaper like "news of the world" goes about reporting on such a big story, with
sure that 5g, 6g and 7g are also deployed in the united states and not in countries like china or india. now, according to the federal communications commission, the u.s. treasury has already collected $50 billion in spectrum receipts since 1993. senator reid's plan does authorize such auctions but it's missing a key element to ensure that they are very successful. unfortunately, like many other agencies in the administration, the federal communications commissions have worked to promulgate regulations that stifle innovation and economic growth. it's important for congress to prohibit the f.c.c. from establishing new similar rules or conditions that outside -- that are outside the scope of technical, ethical or geographic qualifications. such conditions, for example, a net neutrality provision, will only serve to depress the market value of the spectrum, therefore, decreasing government revenues and lowering our ability to reduce the deficit in this way. now, one recent study found that congress has tremendous discretion in the amount of proceeds that it could raise in the exchange for
of those tax cuts in china or in india or job creation in many other places other than here. and the balance part of this amendment requires the passage of a balanced budget constitutional amendment that would require a supermajority to raise any new revenue or close any wasteful tax loopholes. so in other words, you don't have to have a supermajority to decide where and what you're going to wind up spending but you have to have a supermajority in order to raise any revenue or close an egregious tax loophole. one that may have no economic purpose, may be completely outdated, may be a sweetheart deal that got into the tax code over o the course of the years, but you still have to get a supermajority to get rid of that. everybody here knows how hard it is to get 60 votes. a lot of the business in the united states senate has been caught up by the eternal filibuster. every single nomination, every single small piece of legislation that comes to the floor of the senate, everything requires a motion to proceed which requires 60 votes, which is effectively a filibuster each time.
sudan. along with president kiir, we hope the july 9 will mark, as he said in his words, india beginning of tolerance, unity and love in which cultural and ethnic diversity can be a source of pride and strength, not parochialism and conflict. south sudan bears the scars of wars in many forms. including roads, schools and hospitals that were never built. they provide their own sense of permanent scarring. it must also overcome internal corruption and internal rebellions. but as they have already showed the world, the people of south sudan are capable of rising to a challenge. america has stood with the peoples of sudan throughout these struggles. we helped to broker the cpa. we have provided billions of dollars in humanitarian assistance. our representatives, including ambassador lyman, are working tirelessly to bring the parties together. and we must remain involved until there is lasting peace in the region. i would remind people that the war that took place there was the longest war in africa's history. and a cost of over 2 million lives. the last thing that we want to do is go backwar
